Eric Comrie Invited to NHL Combine

John Allen

Portland Winterhawks’ star Seth Jones is one of 22 players from the Western Hockey League who are among the 101 players invited to attend the 2013 NHL Scouting Combine later in May.

The NHL’s annual combine, this year held from May 27 – June 1, brings together the top draft eligible prospects in the world for testing.  The combine is split into two parts. An interview phase will be held May 27-30, followed by a fitness test May 31 and June 1 at the Toronto International Centre and will be headed by Dr. Norman Gledhill and his staff at York University.

Jones, an 18-year-old from Plano, TX, is the No. 1 ranked prospect in NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings of players eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft.  The 6’4”, 206-lb defenceman is currently competing with the Winterhawks in the 2013 MasterCard Memorial Cup tournament in Saskatoon, SK.  Jones was the WHL Rookie of the Year in 2012-13, netting 14 goals and 56 points with a +46 rating in 61 games for the Winterhawks, and helped lead them to the 2013 WHL Championship.

Medicine Hat’s Hunter Shinkaruk, the 6th ranked prospect on NHL Central Scouting’s list, will also attend the combine.  The 18-year-old from Calgary, AB, scored 37 goals and 86 points in 64 games for the Tigers this year after netting 49 markers last year.

Also invited are defencemen Mirco Mueller of the Everett Silvertips, the 9th ranked prospect, and Shea Theodore of the Seattle Thunderbirds, who is the 11th ranked prospect in NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings.

Goaltenders Eric Comrie of the Tri-City Americans and Tristan Jarry of the Edmonton Oil Kings are the two WHL netminders invited to the combine.
